The GAC EDG6000 governor is designed to regulate engine speed on diesel engines and gensets and is suitable for parallel running.

GAC EDG6000 electronic governor

The EDG6000 governor is an ideal replacement if you need flexibility and accurate control of speed

The GAC EDG6000 is designed for industrial engine applications from generator sets, and mechanical drives, to pumps or compressors.

The GAC EDG6000 features 4 selectable speeds – 3 fixed speeds with idle and 1 variable speed. These speed options are what make it ideal for variable speed applications such as pumps and compressors. It works by moving the throttle to any position between fully open and fully closed. Mechanical governors use full throttle even under a modest load, which is unnecessary for applications other than gensets. Having a variable speed setting will assist in reducing fuel consumption and environmental impact.

Other features also include:

  • Wide Operating Temperature Range.
  • Immune to Analog Drift.
  • IP67 Sealed Case and Connector.
  • RS232 and CAN J1939 Communications.
  • Multiple PID Control for Full Tuning of Operation Range.
  • Includes Standard GAC AUX Input for Synchronizing and Load Sharing.
  • User Tamper Resistant – no External Adjustable Pots or Switches.


Will the GAC EDG6000 governor fit my brand of engine?

The EDG6000 electronic governor is compatible with all GAC electronic throttle actuators and is suitable for a wide range of engine brands:

  • Perkins.
  • Yanmar.
  • Kubota.
  • Isuzu.
  • Mitsubishi.
  • Caterpillar.
  • Farymann.
  • Shibaura.

Why should I switch to electronic governing?

The GAC range of electronic governing systems make it simple to get maximum productivity from your engines and gensets.

With electronic governing:

  • Gensets maintain a constant frequency whatever the load. Sensitive electronic equipment is protected against damaging fluctuations. This is especially important in IT and healthcare.
  • Engines respond faster to load changes – as much as 200 times faster.
  • You improve your fuel economy because an electronic governor accurately sets the engine’s throttle to match the load. That reduces your bills and also your environmental footprint.
  • You avoid the massive disruption of installing a new engine from scratch.
